ISO Fresh Whole Trout

In Search Of...

I just moved back to (downtown) Toronto from Spain and I'm reacquainting myself with the availability of products here. Some stuff that I could buy every day, fresh, I'm having trouble finding - fresh or frozen.

This week's search is for fresh, whole, trout. Note: Going fishing on the weekend and snagging a few on my own is not a viable option (I don't tend to catch what I'm fishing for).

I've been through all of Kensington Market and all up the west part of downtown. Before hoofing it over to St Lawrence Market I was wondering if fresh whole trout is, in fact sold by anyone in town at all.
Then, next week, I'll be looking for sole.

    On Spadina in the asian markets there are a number of live fish tanks, I don't recall the species but might be worth a look....

        Thanks. Might take a trip out to the dominion. And I'll be off to t&t some day soon - it looks like (from seeing their web site) an interesting place.

          I was just at T & T today and they had trout live in the tank (they will clean them for you, no charge).

            Good to know about the no-charge cleaning.

            Another place you could call is Bill's Lobster on Gerrard st. Not for the trout, because I don't recall seeing them there. But I've seen live dover sole there on a few occasions and turbot as well.
